Description
From Aerandria Scans:

Yakou Hoshino has the ability to create barriers made of water. He then lends his powers to a ‘ghost buster’ company where he meets the agency's only 'real exorcist', a woman named Rasetsu. Though Rasetsu has mysteries of her own including the fact that she’s cursed by an evil spirit, and that she’s the spitting image of Yurara’s guardian ghost.

Kyaa! Just a few pages into the first volume and I thought I had a glimpse of a female version of the "immortal L" - dunking a month's worth of sugar into coffee. Character wise, manipulative Yakou has finally met his match yet! Also... My overactive imagination was running amok with the subtle undertones of something's-going-on-amongst-the-guys. Alas the story began to get rather predictable after a while...

I liked Yurara for the most part at the beginning, but towards the end i almost banged my head against the wall. So i was a bit concerned when i started reading this one. Thankfully this was a much better execution, with both the ghost cases, overall plot and romance. It kept me interested through all 9 volumes, and it'll be a story that i'll surely re-read in the future.

If you haven't done so already, go buy all the books, they're as cheap as $5 for all volumes except the last 2. It's totally worth it!

Better than the prequel.

I am very reluctant on giving this a 10, but for now, I think it deserves it. It's probably one of the only shoujo (and yes, I am an avid shoujo fan) that I would be willing to buy the entire box set full-price.

But that said, the characters are much less annoying than those in Yurara. The main character has inner strength, but also some insecurities to make her more realistic and hence, more relatable to the reader. However, her insecurities aren't just suddenly appearing-- they're well developed with rational reasoning beside them, despite the fact that the comedy (which, I have to admit, is often somewhat dark) often overshadows them. The characterization in this manga is difficult to see, in other words, but it is there, and masterfully so.
The main guy, Yako, felt almost stereotypical to me, but given the premise of his character, his reactions are well-thought out, and the originality is still there, if only slightly.
I have to admit, one of the greatest points to this manga is the importance of side characters. They each have their own roles in shaping the main characters, as well as their own motives. It's quite obvious to see their purposes, but at least they're not just there, like in most shoujo.

I don't ever write comments for series, but this is one series that I feel very strongly about.

I wasn't particularly in love with the prequel, Yurara, so I was a bit skeptical about reading this sequel. I'm very very very glad I did. Unlike Yurara, Rasetsu is portrayed as a much stronger character and is much less frustrating that Yurara. Even the male protagonists are better characterized.

The storyline is captivating and always keeps you interested. I read the series through the Viz releases and after buying each volume, I was always desperate to get my hands on the next one. I was never bored due to the mystery and many questions Chika Shiomi creates (they're all answered by the end though). Even if the element of the supernatural is predominant, the story becomes strangely realistic in terms of the interactions between the characters. The development of love and relationships is built up realistically and believably, so it doesn't get frustrating or annoying at all, which is surprising for a shoujo manga.

I absolutely love the story progression, and the ending is perfect, but I can't deny that I wish it ended differently. This is one of the only series that had me tearing up (I don't really feel emotional when reading manga) at the end. It's bittersweet, but I wish it was just a little less sad (though, this is just my own preference). I loved the characters and had a personal attachment to them, so as much as the ending made perfect sense, it made me depressed.

Although I didn't feel super happy after finishing this manga, I'm satisfied (though I still want to cry). It's definitely one that any shoujo and non-shoujo fan should read. It doesn't disappoint!

I'm so in love with this manga. The heroine is awesome, she's strong in the physical sense but weak in the head. Really relatable. The story line is really good! I love the romance and supernatural put together! The art is amazing.

Realistic romance and I LOVE it

I wasn't into its prequel, Yurara no Tsuki, but weird enough I'm so attracted to this story. The heroine is not like Yurara no tsuki's heroine, Rasetsu is much stronger and she knows who she is. I can say that she kicks ass, I love her. And the boy? Personally I love Yakou even since Yurara no tsuki, and now I love him even more.


The story begins with fun cases as the opening. Like the other great mangas out there, the tension is built step by step and as the story goes the plot becomes more and more complicated. Of course this wouldn't work for those impatient readers. But for me, it works because I just hate the type of story which goes too fast like 'oh it begins', 'woowie it's climaxed', and then in the next book 'whoot, it ends'. No, I don't like something like that. I like something that's thoroughly planned and slowly but sure reveals bits by bits its mysteries.

The romance part is really good because they don't rush things. They are human with problems. They won't fall in love THAT easily without going through many things, moreover that they have dark pasts. If they do fall in love that easily, then that's absurd and unrealistic, I'd throw the books without reading them further. Luckily, the romance goes just in a perfect pace for me so I can say I LOVE it very much.

One of the mangas I love. I own thousands of mangas (FYI my country is one of the biggest manga publishers in this world) and I read mangas since I was five. As I grow up I become more and more picky, as I've read so many books that I become bored to read the cliche ones and the unworthy ones. So if a manga can pick up my interest, then it's special. I don't know about other people's taste, but so far this is one of the few mangas I found worth to read.

I don't like it. It's so uninteresting to me.

The story is so repetitive. Every chapter the girl goes to exorcise some zomgscaryghost w this 2 dudes. And their tricks to exorcist ghost are always the same old shit. Splashing some water and saying some lines.

The heroine, in normal circumstances, is all weak and stupid. But when she suddenly senses a ghost, she goes "CHING", another person. Those serious, powerful, cool heroine. But she's not so powerful afterall. There are always some moments where she gets possessed/influenced by the ghost so damn easily. The character is simply confusing. Isn't she supposed to be a strong, powerful zomgyoucannoteverwinme person? After she gets saved by one of these two dudes, she goes CHING! WOAH I HAVE BEEN ENLIGHTENED SO NOW I WILL "PURIFY" YOU, and appears to be cool again. What the heck is this shit?

Besides, the romance is TOO SLOW. That strong, cool heroine is now a stupid girl, who likes cakes and blushes very easily when people praises her, intentionally or not. And then, those 2 dudes, I don't even know if they like her or not. Yeah, they showed some signs, but they have to be more obvious.

I gave this manga a 7 because of the beautiful artwork. The characterization is bull, and the plot is boring.
"Average: 9.1 / 10.0, Bayesian Average: 8.74 / 10.0" ?
Nah, I don't think it deserves that high.

Must Read for Yurara no Tsuki fans

Love this sequel. I hope some of the main characters from Yurara no Tsuki will be present in this one too. For those who have read Yurara no Tsuki before, I must say this is a must read. I was suprised that Rasetsu looks soo much like the ghost that possessed Yurara and now (lolx...*possible spoiler*) Y.a.k.o... Still I think Yurara (ghost) looks much more beautiful and mature \^_^/ Cheers.
